Beautiful murky and deep golden orange with a half finger lingering head. A sweet citrus dominated by blood orange and a nice hop bite. Slightly maltier than my preference with the weight and mouthfeel of an imperial. Excellent with some light San Diego pizza.

Tastes like grunion from BP but without that strong of a smell but it is very citrusy.

A very sticky, dark burnt orange IPA. Persistent off-white head. Lots of previously mentioned stick all the way down the glass. Very pretty. This is what I think of when I think of a Pizza Port IPA. Gorgeous.

Aroma of citrus, pine, and resin. Dank. Strong, expressive, appropriate, and lovely.

The flavor follows the aroma: tons of pine, resin, citrus zest, and lots of bitterness. A big, bold, expressive, bitter beer that pairs well with salty, cruncy, savory pizza.

Medium bodied with moderate, nearly high, carbonation.

Fantastic. I love Pizza Port IPAs.

Very flat flavor profile. Call it cardboard with hop extract-- the blotter acid of the brew pub. Clear, light golden amber in the glass.

Surprisingly light body. Sharp and harsh. No apparent hint of malt. Watery and totally bitter. Just a slight aroma emerges with some flowery notes. Some resins in the taste, but mostly just a medicinal burning bitterness. Way beyond grapefruit peel. It's not an IPA, it's a chemical reaction. Totally undrinkable, to my taste, but tougher hop fanatics may rise to the challenge.

On tap at Pizza Port in Ocean Beach.
